Two DIY Knockoff Lord Bodner Octopus Triptych Tutorials:
- $3,550 Lord Bodner Octopus Triptych here.
- DIY Knockoff tutorial from Revamp Homegoods here. *I like the clipart of the octopus on the black canvas before the hand painting of the image better. I’d try and either print it on tissue paper or vellum, or get a super cheap “engineer’s copy” from Staples and then adhere it to the canvases.
- The Graphics Fairyclipart here. *Tons of Steampunk and clipart images on this site for commercial use!
- DIY tutorial from 1922 House here (read comments) here.

Etsy Crocheted Tentacle Scarf. Not a DIY (but awesome) because I cannot find a pattern for this anywhere! One woman knitted one that kind of looked like this here, posted the pattern and took it down because she wants to sell it on Ravelry (but it’s still not posted). From creeplings’s Etsy Store here (where she’s sold out and swears she’s never going to do another custom order ever).
Artist: Paolo De Francesco. “Apparently, it was originally the rejected artwork for the album cover of ‘Arrivederci, Mostro’, by the Italian singer-songwriter Luciano Ligabue.” The untangling of this mystery of who was the artist found at: http://glendonmellow.blogspot.com/2011/02/why-i-dont-like-tumblr-mystery.html
